Northern Shrimp (Pandalus borealis)
The machine is compact and can therefore be intregrated into existing onboard processing lines.
Advantages of space and cost saving vessels
De-heading units can also be fitted onboard and would provide the following advantages.
Catches of smaller grade shrimp are generally destined for peeling ashore. The head of a shrimp accounts for approximately 40% of its mass. In our opinion de-heading of industrial shrimp onboard, pre freezing, also provides a number of advantages in this regard:
40% extra raw material for peeling ashore can be stored onboard headless shell-on format.
The storage facilities can take a larger quantity of catch, which means the possibiltiy of increased time on the fishing grounds and thereby reduced number of trips per season;
Reduced freezing costs in relation to the headless material destined for peeling ashore.
